Happy Birthday Bill


This is for a guy I know
This poem is written just for show
I see you every day at our senior site
You and your mother make my day bright

We've had a lot of laughs through these years
But that's better than a lot of tears
We don't like the same kind of music but that's okay
You have your opera and I like country

Another year has passed
Another birthday came around
You will always be a little older
And I think a little bolder

Have a very happy birthday
That's really what I wanted to say
And be my friend another day

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
